Greetings, Wanda! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since April. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Embarassed to say I've done NOTHING toward starting a group at UNB other than think and talk about it ... Action - the critical last step :) You've inspired me to make that an official 2010 goal though. And please, let me know if I can help with the HVHS club.
Thanks Wanda, call me anti-something or other, July 4th, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, my birthday, well, they're all just another day in the life to me with no more or less meaning than any other day. Perhaps I'll schedule a barbeque and blow up cherry bombs on July 11th just to be wicked.
